Coming out of the winter months with dry skin?
Before you try over-the-counter creams and treatments, here's a look at a natural approach to fighting chapped skin.
For many people with dry skin, dermatologists may suggest creams and other treatments.
But now doctors are finding that using olive oil can do wonders for dry or damaged skin.
It has antioxidants that are nutrients that can help prevent and repair damage to your skin's tissue.
Olive oil skin care dates back over 5,000 years ago, when it was used as an ancient beauty treatment.
But over the years it got a bad reputation, because people thought oil would clog the skin's pores causing breakouts.
Doctors say a little olive oil goes a long way.
When using it on the face, it can smooth the complexion, and give elasticity to the skin.
It can also help heal brittle nails and soften the cuticles.
